Environmentaland, First Eco Theme Park, Opens In LA
Make way for some new neighbors on the Walk of Fame. The world’s first eco theme park, Environmentaland, has opened its doors in Hollywood. The park is run by Global Inheritance, an activist group with nearly two dozen eco-programs to their name (and a really nice looking website to boot).
Environmentaland features a number of eco-friendly exhibits, including an Energy Playground (with Energy Battle Royals!), a Mini-Bin Exhibit and Designing Station, a Planetarium, Desert Mini Golf Course, Recycled Paper Plane Takeoff station, and Alternative Energy Golf Carts.
The space will also be hosting fashion shows, movie nights and art shows, all eco-friendly and informational, of course. If you’re in the LA area, or might be traveling through, Environmentaland is on Hollywood and Highland, which is some prime tourist real estate if you ask me. I’m excited to check it out when I’m in town.
According to their site, “Global Inheritence is an organization working to reinvent activism for today’s young generations. Our initiatives focus on the power of creativity to comunicate and push for progressive social change while rejecting conflict.” So far this year they’ve been involved with environmental programs at the X Games and Coachella. I’ll be keeping my eye on these guys for sure.
